In mid June EO Brisbane members participated in our Amazing Race / Bike Factory Event
Three teams set out across the CBD and participated in challenges including busking, hit the target, newspaper tower building, bet a chip to win money, abseiling, kayaking and also completed brainteasers along the way. After completing each check point teams were given a piece of a bike i.e. wheel, seat, handle bars with the final challenge being building the bike. Upon all teams completion bonus points were awarded for a range of reasons and some points were subtracted for not following the rules. A presentation was made to the winning ‘orange team’ (Team BTC / Rethink) and then 4 underprivileged kids who have faced many challenges in their lives were brought in and the bikes were donated to them. The looks on their faces was priceless, some had never ridden a bike before. So how do you top off a day like that, with none other than a private fireworks show including a blazing EO logo.
